Mediocre 2.0

Cons: Terrible service and all around outcome. Would not fly Air New Zealand again

LAX

Excellent 10.0

Pros: Everything. Air NZ has the best Premium Economy class in the sky.

Cons: All good.

Excellent 10.0

Pros: The crew on air New Zealand was absolutely amazing. Amazing customer service, makes me always want to fly with air New Zealand.

Cons: I had no heads up that New Zealand required an app downloaded and a government check before you can travel to New Zealand. Because of this, I had to download the app at the airport, and because it can take up to 72 hours for the NZ gov to approve your app, I almost missed my flight. Would have appreciated 72 hours notice of this new rule.

Good 7.3

Pros: Crew was great, plane was modern and clean

Cons: We booked row 2 to be a quick entry/exit but they board this plane from the rear. No entertainment, so bring your own

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in NZD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
